Movie of the week!

The greatest stories are told, retold and told again. Albeit a children's film this week's movie of the week is based upon a Shakespearean tale of two star-crossed lovers.

This week's movie of the week is Gnomeo and Juliet!

As the story opens we see two elderly yet fiery neighbours, Mrs Montague and Mr Capulet, that clearly dislike each other. This dislike filters down to their warring gnomes that come alive in the absence of their owners, with the Mrs Montague's gnomes wearing blue hats and Mr Capulet's red.

The two sides compete against each other in a lawnmower race and following Tybalt's cheating the red hats win. Unable to forget about the cheating, Gnomeo and his friend Benny head into the reds garden to extract their revenge but when Benny trips a security light they have to make a sharp exit.

This leads Gnomeo to meet Juliet. A hilarious take on the classic love story unfolds and with music by Elton John and the voices of James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, Michael Cain and Maggie Smith to name just a few, you are kept thoroughly entertained.

But will the story have a tragic ending like the original or will it have a happily ever after? 

Well, have a watch and find out! Gnomeo and Juliet is back on Netflix and you can also buy a copy from Amazon for the bargain price of £2.62!
